I seem to remember you having the same problem with your adjustable lowers, pascal. It's a huge PITA. I'm getting a poly bushed mid-adustable like the BMR model. this one is damn near impossible to adjust/tighten.

Oh yeah, the housing on the passenger side...
You can't get to turn the jaming nut! Shrewd engineering there.
You have to disconect the bar to adjust it
I have the POS Steeda one, but the BMR kind is the way to go.
Adjustments away from each ends FTW!

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say the issue is double rod-ends along with the jam nut up in the clamp on the chassis side. There is NO WAY you can adjust the jam nut on the chassis side with it on-car. You would have to adjust it off the car and use some kind of thread locker to keep it from moving. This would be a huge PITA. It's history.... I'll have a rod-end combo w/ center/oncar adjuster next week. At least with the BMR model, you would be able to lock one end of the adjuster, therefore keeping the panhard from moving back and forth under load.

With this bar here, you'd have to put
the adjustment end to the driver side.

Get the BMR man.
You'll be done.
The adjustments are about a foot away from
the driver side.
Easy access.

THAT's what I'm talking about! While the UPR and UMI models are adjustable and LOCKABLE off the car, there is no way they can be adjusted an locked down tight on-car. You may tell me I'm a dumbass for not taking them off-car, adjusting the length and then locking it down with loktite before reinstalling but that is a PITA and not feasible to me. I should be able to make all adjustments on-car. that's just me I guess...

This is the one I have now, it's a UMI but looks exactly like the UPR. Tell me how you're going to adjust this thing on-car?

Same as the Steeda...
You can't adjust, since you cannot loosen the jam nut on the passenger side, lol.

I can adjust my BMR LCA's on-car, no problem. Granted, on jackstands and hydraulic assist to take load off the suspension. But it can be done easily. Panhard and UCA should be the same, no?

Panhard should be like a tie-rod end
Adjust on the car, even with the load...
